    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (Canton, OH).

    Interview

    You basically go in and answer typical interview questions. By this point they already know if they want to hire you. You don't want to work here anyway.. big gossip place.. they drop meat on the floor and still sell it to customers ... they rewrap meat so it is rotten when you get it and upper management tells them to do this ... sad part is they don't feel bad... this is why I gave my 2 weeks after 10 years of working here, after finding this out

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (Clinton Township, MI) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. They called me a week later for a interview. I showed up on time and the manager showed up late for the interview. There were 2 guys interviewing me. They asked my availability and asked about my work experience. Then one of the asked me who filled out my application. I personally thought that was a very discriminating question because i look a little young for my age. told me the hiring process. They said they would send me a email and then I have to verify for a background check. Then I would have to go somewhere and do a drug screening test. It's been over a week and I still have not yet received a email.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (New Port Richey, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was pretty laid back for the most part. I handed in my resume, & the woman interviewing me basically just based her interview questions off the resume. She just verified certain info with me that was included in my resume. The one-on-one interview took a total of 45 minutes. I actually really liked the lady that handled the interview. She was extremely informative & very nice.

    Took forever. They started by emailing me asking for more information so they can run a background check. Afterwards I finally got called in for an interview. It was fairly simple. They asked basic questions you would expect any hiring manager to ask you.

    I had a phone interview that lasted about 30 to 45 minutes. The interview started off with basic questions asking who I was and how I got to the college I attend. The questions slowly progressed into harder ones, but they remained pretty easy throughout. It was essentially a behavioral interview and it was pretty easy. Not much preparation needed.
